Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

Re: Sirens in RTV ?

Diane hit this on the head. While I am cool with anyone studying different terms on their own time, in RYV, we are not going to refer to thins as M3 or "all chest" because there is no need for that with this method. We do not need to confuse people with terms. In RYV and VVA, there is no need to bog yourself down with modes, as it can all be viewed as one voice and becoming over-analytical with it, will not help you build the muscles. Listen to the audio examples that come with this book and in the videos from VVA.

Re: Sirens in RTV ?

Like Nick pointed out, there's a whole chapter on it:) Our goal is one solid voice from bottom to top. You might have to read through parts of RYV 2-3 times before it all clicks and mkakes sense, but eventually it will. For now, focus on the exercises as your voice builds muscle.
